Moreton Race Series 2016


The Moreton Race Series is a weekly crit race, running around a 2.5 mile lap, on the roads of Moreton every Thursday evening in the summer. Riders are set off in ability related groups, so everyone has a chance of winning!
The first race is on Thursday 12th May and then every Thursday night after that. The final race is on Thursday 21st July.
The Moreton Race Series is part of the Dorset Cycle Racing League, with all races providing Dorset League Points. Prizes are awarded for each race on the night, which are being provided by the brilliant Bournemouth Cycleworks.
Once again we are running women-only races, which will take place before the main races, starting on 2nd June. Women are welcome to ride in the open races too!
Races last 55 mins + 1 lap for the open race and 30 mins + 1 lap for the women-only race. Online entries open at 10pm the Thursday before each race and close at midnight the day before. Any remaining spaces will be available on the night.
Marshalling
Each series rider is required to volunteer (or bring a volunteer) for marshalling one race and are able to pre-book their preferred date(s) via the marshalling system. Without enough marshalls the race can't go ahead.
Marshalling does not affect season points, as we only count the best 10 out of 12 rounds.
Each marshal will be paid £5 for their time and also get a cuppa and cake. The rider will also get priority entry for that round (or the following round if they marshal themselves).
There is no limit to the number of times a rider can provide a marshall, so you can bring one along every week if you like!
